Dusty, poorly flowing powders
The rotating, automatically cleaned Cleanflow magnets are very suitable for dusty and poorly flowing - like fatty - powders.
The automatic cleaning makes them also suitable for situations where the magnetic separator is hardly or not accessible for operation and cleaning.
Construction & materials data

Trapping & discharging of ferrous contaminants
These automated cleaning Cleanflow magnets have a rotor with several pneumatically operated magnetic bars. Each magnetic bar has a magnet package that pneumatically moves inside an enclosing tube.
During a cleaning cycle, the magnet bundles are pneumatically moved out of the product channel. The moving magnets pull the captured ferrous particles along with them over the tube surface. However, they are stopped by the housing side plate halfway the tube length. As soon as the magnets are far enough out, the captured ferrous particles will fall into the product channel, after which the valve box ensures further discharge.
- Stop the product stream.
- Give start signal to the magnet's control unit.
- Now first the valve in the valve box is automatically switched to iron discharge position.
- Then the magnets inside the pneumatic tubes are moved automatically out of the product channel.
The captured metal particles want to 'travel' with the magnets, but are held by retainer rings on the magnet bar tubes. As soon as the magnets are out of reach, the captured particles automatically drop off of the tubes, into the valve box, where they are discharged further.
- Then the magnets inside the pneumatic tubes are moved automatically back into the product channel.
- When the magnets are all back in, the valve will automatically be switched back to its production position.
- As soon as the magnets and valve are back in production position, the control will give a 'ready for production' signal.
- You can now safely resume production.
